I'm fairly new here but I've been smoking for about three years. I decided to try my hand at cold smoking cheese with the AMNS (6X6) but I'm having a hard time keeping the dust lit. I used an Akorn Kamado grill and placed the maze on the fire bowl grate (no charcoal), both top and bottom vents wide open. When that didn't work I removed the ash tray from the grill, leaving the bottom completely open, thinking it was an air flow problem. That didn't work either. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Maybe the dust is too tight or too loose in the maze, still need more ventilation, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
